WRONGTOM meets DEEMAS J – LIVE & EXCLUSIVE
For the first time anywhere, Skylarkin’ favourite DJ Wrongtom brings his recent Tru Thoughts LP to life with backing from Desta Zion Wilson’s award-winning reggae 7-piece Mighty Leap, plus of course the inimitable vocal stylings of mic-man Deemas J.
A near constant companion over the first 10 years of Skylarkin’ Soundsystem has been my fellow South Londoner DJ Wrongtom. One of the finest DJs I’ve ever had the pleasure to share a set of turntables with, Tom’s own productions came to wider prominence courtesy of ‘Duppy Writer’, the acclaimed dubwise remix album for Stockwell laureate Roots Manuva some years back, resulting in a record deal with Tru Thoughts and a new LP featuring long-time collaborator Deemas J.
‘Wrongtom Meets Deemas J In East London’ is a deep, fresh and bouncing reggae, dancehall and dub fuelled LP, with a vibe rooted in East London and paying homage to the culture and sound that first got them both hooked back in the ‘80s, when Fashion Records topped the charts and the likes of Smiley Culture and General Levy rammed the dances.
TONIGHT, for the very first time, the pair debut their full live show, with sides from their debut Tru Thoughts LP brought to life by Desta Zion Wilson‘s award-winning reggae 7-piece MIGHTY LEAP.
PLUS a short set of their own material from Mighty Leap for early-comers, and the sound of Wrongtom, Deemas, Count Skylarkin and House Of Roots’ Sultan on the decks till the small hours.
